Look, No Hands!
How many times have you been in the back of your ambulance bouncing down the road with a patient who is vomiting uncontrollably? You’re probably trying to catch the emesis in a small basin or bag and the patient isn’t able to do much to help you. Now you have to worry about exposure to whatever it is that person may have. The Barf Bib from The Barf Bib Company offers complete protection from vomit in the conscious or unconscious patient. The elastic neck opening allows for a quick, secure fit that is comfortable for the patient. The flip-up splash guard provides protection from projectile vomit, and the polyurethane inner liner provides a leak-resistant barrier that traps odors. The bag collects the emesis and keeps it off of you, your crew and your ambulance.
Price: $2.50 each (1–250); $2.25 each (251–500); $2.00 each (501–1000); call for pricing (1,000+)
